  1. I love it. When I first caught wind of her being Mr. Obama's selection, I knew there would be trouble in paradise. Shortly thereafter, YouTube videos were publicized and pundits hopped all over her. She was labeled a racist and people called for her declination of the position.

    I'm glad she's finally in. I've studied her rulings in the past and she should prove to be an asset to this Nation. Good on you, Ms. Jones for speaking on this...

  5. There are no glass ceilings, only the ones that we erect ourselves. Everyday people are tearing down walls that others and themselves have erected that say you can’t do that, you can’t be that or you’re not welcome, because you are this… not that and that's for other's. I'm so proud of Justice Sotomayor because she is an inspiration to millions of little girls and women who now know that they can become anything that they set their minds to, if they only believe that they can achieve it. All of my life I have imagined a country where true diversity rules and not the exclusionary practices that are so readily available to attempt to thwart one‘s success and maintain the status quo. America's brightest have a right to take center stage to represent each and everyone of us who make up the word, American.
